With the new protocol equipment that was distributed to all agencies within the Lord Fairfax EMS Council region, there should have been a 22mm double female adapter included. The rationale for this adapter is to give you the ability to administer a nebulizer treatment through the Boussgniac CPAP System. If you receive a different CPAP device when doing equipment exchange, this set-up may not work. If you are receiving different equipment, please contact the Council. More
The Winchester Medical Center now has an e-mail address available for transmission of 12-Leads when Lifenet is not available in the field.
